About: Why call it "one-stop shopping"? This database includes international, Federal, state, non-profit, foundation, and institutional research, training, travel, and scholarship funding opportunities. It is a subscription-based database; use your MyPitt credentials if off campus to login and create an account.
Note: Grants found through the links throughout this guide can all be found by searching PIVOT.
Note: The funding listed below can also be found in PIVOT.
The Office of Sponsored Programs can be a good starting point for getting assistance in locating funds. They offer sessions on using PIVOT, the grant source for "one-stop-shopping", throughout the semester and can help graduate students find funding as well.
